of 2008. while governor romney has had nearly two dozen debates during that gop primary. the obama campaign says the president's strategy is focused on shorter, crisper answers. the romney strategy, as reported in "the new york times" has the governor memorizing a series of zingers to try to hit the president with. let's bring in our "news nation" political panel for this monday. democratic strategist chris, national radio host michael, and also an msnbc contributor, and villa skype as you can tell from our shot there, steve, conservative radio show host. you have the visual disadvantage because you're skype. i'll let you start off first here. let me play what paul ryan, completely opposite of what chris christie said this sunday. his assessment of the debates. let's play ryan, please. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. look, president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> it's no secret, steve, you are conservative republican. you are not a fan of mitt romney. is this a make or break mom
will be romney's time to shine. >> don't expect any zingers. >> governor romney is getting by on a zing and prayer. >> i don't know that zingers necessarily turn it around. >> that zinger and that line that gets replayed over and over again. >> if we don't run chris christie, romney will be the candidate and will lose. >> style is substance. >> wouldn't it just be easier to have a hot dog eating contest and call it a day? anyone? >> that's not helping. >> with 36 days until the presidential election and 47 hours in the debate the pressure is mounting. bill o'reilly tried to tell republicans to calm down about the debate. that they're expecting way too much of mitt romney. but this being bill o'reilly, he ended up putting even more pressure on romney. >> i think the expectations for the debate are too high. particularly conservative republican americans are expecting mitt romney to go out there and do something and i don't know whether that as even possible right now. the first debate means everything. the whole world is watching this thing. this is a big, big debate on wednesday night.
and governor romney probably put in an equal amount of time preparing for this debate. >> reporter: just two days after the president joked his own advisors were pushing him to do more debate prep. >> they're making me do my homework. >> reporter: obama campaign manager said romney had an advantage going into the debate. >> governor romney's prepared more for this debate than any president in modern american history. when you're president, you can't take out an entire week. >> we don't need to have a board of 15 people telling us what kinds of treatments we should have. >> reporter: the rnc released a new web video called the smirk seizing on the president's sometimes uncomfortable body language. romney can only look to the obama campaign's own web video to see the president's next line of attack. >> with the language mitt romney uses, the verdict is false. >> reporter: democrats are already labeling some of romney's statements like this one on health care outright lies. >> pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> well, actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. >> repo
? >> 14% is the number. 23 million is the number quoted by governor romney during the debate. it is a grim employment situation any which way you slice it. bill: but now you're still now below the big number. you're below 8%. so to the politics on this now? >> that is where some of the mistrust comes in. how convenient the rate drops below 8% first time in 43 months, five weeks before the election. there is some mistrust of these numbers along with the contradiction between 873,000 people found work, only 114,000 new jobs. mistrust of this report. bill: on that point it will be interesting to see how president obama plays this in fairfax, virginia later today. how mitt romney responds. he is in virginia, southwestern part of the state. also in florida. >> i suspect the president will play it big, we're going in the right direction. look at this 7.8%. how governor romney will respond i don't know. bill: stuart, 9:20 a.m.. this will pop up again. martha: let's get context of this. back in december 2007, when the recession began the unemployment rate was 5%. in october of 2009, that is the pe
is playing the old expectation games on lower xfgss for governor romney but chris christie is calling the debate a game changer. i wonder who is right. >> reporter: you got surrogates talking a lot today. they will continue until wednesday when the priangs can go face to face. today governor romney is doing his debate. president obama has arrived in las vegas and getting ready for the showdown. romney will be in denver in advantages of this. paul ryan was talking about the romney ryan ticket new framework for the race. they said referendum on president obama's record. but it's decide how to best deal with the competent. here is paul ryan trying to set the stage. >> we can have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we can stick with the failed policies of last four years for the next four years or a brighter future. stalg nation versus growth, dependency versus opportunity and mobility. that is the classic choice and clear difference we are offering. >> reporter: that is sort of classic choice, a very broad assessment of the tw
hampshire. new hampshire, of course, romney's home away from home where he has a vacation spot. governor romney's favorables continue to be underwater in all but north carolina now. combine these numbers with what we've seen all week, how worried are republicans? how worried are they that we're approaching the point where it might be time to focus on the congressional races? >> i think people are getting very worried, and i had a pollster doing conservative polling for three decades on my show last night. he said it may be time to go back to a 1996 model of telling the american people, listen, if you're going to re-elect bill clinton, you better have republicans in the congress to make sure to keep him in check. i think it may be a little early for that yet. i think the president still has weaknesses because of the economies, and i think because of that mitt romney's gin more chances than he otherwise would to make his case to the american people. i think this very first debate next week may be his last best chance to make his case. >> do you think if the debate's a flop for mitt romney
performance. >> governor romney may dance around the position, but if you want to be president you owe the american people the truth. >> gretchen: who is the one really lying? >> steve: meanwhile thank goodness for al gore . he explains why the president flopped out. >> you go to 5,000 feet and only a few hours to adjust. >> steve: isn't he the guy who invented the intim ator. blame it on the thin air . we'll tell you that story. >> brian: joe biden, take another gaffe. >> you guys sit down if you have a seat. guyings, i didn't realize you didn't have seats, i apologize . my mother would kill me if a woman was standing this long. i apologize . >> brian: another instant biden classic coming to you and what he said later on is note worthy especially to paul ryan who will be debating him shortly . -- shortly. "fox and friends" starts right now. >> steve: so you were wearing pants all along? >> brian: i am not saying anything. >> gretchen: they are snap on. >> steve: as long as they are not snap offs . >> gretchen: we have a peek underneath. twitter me if you think brian bears boxers or br
of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in those countries. that is not in our interest. >> greta: mr. secretary, always nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: straight ahead, why is the obama administration telling companies to break the law? how can the president justify this? making matters worse, the president is promising to pay the legal bills of the companies breaking the law with, you guessed it, taxpayer money. this story is likely to ung
are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> i want to bring in dana milbank and matt welsh. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i suppose we shouldn't be surprised this race to lower expectations. give us your take on the expectations for this debate. >> romney needs something to happen for him. he's had a bad couple of weeks. ever since the 47% comment which i think that be di
. >> governor romney put more preparation into it than they did into the invasion of normandy. i expected a strong performance and got it. >> many were watching governor romney without 30 second attack ads. >> reporter: perhaps most evidence during the closing statement. >> four years ago, i said i'm not a perfect man and wouldn't be a perfect president. that's probably a promise governor romney thinks i kept. i fight every day for the american people. >> no question in my mind, if the president were to continue to be reelected, there will be a middle class squeeze. i'll get incomes up again. >> they weren't the only characters in last night's debate. twitter and face book lit up with viewers commenting and arguing. it was the most tweeted event in political history. ket? >> the next presidential debate is the 16th in long island. it will be in the form of a town hall meeting. undecided voters will ask questions. they will focus on foreign and domestic policy. paul ryan and vice president joe biden have theirs next thurs in kentucky. >>> michelle obama will make a trip to virginia to camp
morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. students and journalism students. let me take your question. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. -- so many americans see the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in t
be at a disadvantage. >> challengers tend to do well governor mitt romney has more to benefit than we do. >> gretchen: chris christie guaranteeing round one going to romney. >> every time mitt romney is confronted with one of these moments he performs well and laying out his vision clearly and contrasting himself with the opponent. i am confident thursday morning, george. saying it is a brand new race with 33 days to go. >> gretchen: the debate is in the university of the denver. and focus on policy. and a white woman rejected from the university of the texas because of her race. it could be a major cut back with affirmative. judge robert decided to affirm the constitutionity of obama care. botched fast and furous program linked over 300 shooting in the new mexico. more than dozen teenagers left dead. 1300 guns are still unaccounted for. the failed program was under investigation since border agent briknow terry - briantery was killed. >> former governor said the moment he realized the house keeper. he tarted looking like me. and i kind of got it. it was never discussed. i put the things together her
's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well. >>> good morning, it is monday, october 1st. it's october, everybody. welcome to "morning joe." >> yeah, you know who's glad september's over? >> who? >> the jets. holy cow! >> i thought you were going to say mitt romney. with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" senior political editor mark halperin and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine john heilemann. guys. hi, willie. >> hello. >> it's not as bad as being a red sox fan, but if you're a jets fan right now, holy cow! tebow's like, you know, he's getting ready. >> he should have been ready. i don't know why they kept sanchez in the whole game. 103 yards, less than 50% passing, one interception and frankly wasn't close. it was a strange thing to watch. >> it was absolutely brutal. and then, of course, the yankees, man. that playoff race. >> o
policies that led to a slow and sluggish recovery. >> what about governor romney in terms of what his most challenging question is, the thing he's least looking forward to talking about? >> it's flip of that. if president obama needs to defend why the recovery hasn't been quicker, romney needs to explain why he would actually make it faster. this is where the obama campaign sees their opportunity. george w. bush, obviously, his prime economic policy was a set of very large tax cuts. they did not have a very positive effect on the economy, even before the recession. it was a very, very weak expansion. and so governor romney has come in and he's proposed very, very large tax cuts again. and he hasn't wanted, in order to get away from the bush part, he hasn't wanted to explain them too much. in fact, paul ryan, his running mate says, the math is just too hard. but it really isn't. and i would imagine the obama administration, or obama's going to go through tonight, you really only need to know two numbers about romney's tax plan, one is $480 billion. that's the cost of it in 2015, just to pic
. that was governor romney's advice. just let the whole housing market bottom out. do you know what? my administration -- we have already helped more than a million responsible homeowners refinance their mortgages. i'm running to let them -- i'm running to make sure that everybody, that more people like them who are responsible and who have been paying their mortgage payments, that they have a chance to refinance and save up to $3000 per year. and by the way, i'm never going to turn medicare into a voucher program. we are going to reform and strengthen medicare for the long haul the right way by reducing the cost of health care, not by shifting it on to seniors. and we are not going to -- we are going to keep the promise of social security. we are not going to turn it over to wall street. just like we are doing work at home, we are going to continue to work abroad. four years ago, i said i'd end and the war in iraq and i did. i said that we are going to wind down the war in afghanistan and we are. and while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al qaeda is on the path to defeat. osama bin lade
with governor romney campaigning in ohio this week. senator, it's great to see you. >> good morning, glad to be with you. >> kentucky is i think safe, and i'm from cincinnati and i would imagine that southern ohio is safe and that the work that romney has to do is probably as you go north, it gets harder and harder. is that the case in ohio? >> well, you know, i think in kentucky we've got it pretty well sewn up. ohio is more difficult. but, you know, in 2010, rob portman wins by 18 points, kasich wins for governor, they win the statehouse and the state senate and 10 out of 18 congressional seats and i'm hard-pressed to know how it's different in 2012 than it was in 2010. i think most of the polling is modeling, you know, 2008, and i think it's going to be closer to 2010 than it's going to be to 2008. >> senator, do you think for the votes that romney needs to get in ohio, is it -- does it help him to seem more conservative and get your support and it's, like, some of the conservatives say, wow, i like romney now because rand paul is associating himself with him, or does it hurt people th
the president said which i want you to listen to. >> obama: governor romney may dance around his position, he may do a tap dance and a two step but if you want to be president, then you owe the american people the truth. [ cheers ] >> jamal: i don't know. he is talk about governor romney dancing. i don't know if you have seen mitt romney walking around he looks like his shoes are too tight when he comes out on stage. i kind of wonder was that a dog whistle. there was a woman who has a new show coming out, but i wonder if that's a dog whistle about awkward white guy. >> now all i can think about is him dancing, so it works. >> jamal: thank you for being here. i have had a great time. bill will be here on monday. i'm jamal simmons, @jam mallsimilar sons on twitter. have a great day. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."
romney. it is still competitive, but governor thompson was considered the best republican nominee. paul ryan nominated for vp. suddenly, wisconsin was possibly in the republican column. >> that night is the first debate, or is there a series? >> i don't know of the top of my head, but it will be an interesting evening because governor thompson is a state wide brand. he is known as governor tommy. he is speaking to representatives will lead as a liberal. -- baldwin as a liberal. she is going to try to define herself up positive way. he will try to define her negatively. >> the debate will be live from wisconsin, we will broadcast it live at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. >> tonight at 9:00, campaign coverage continues with the wisconsin senate debate. tammy baldwin debates tommy thompson. nbc is open because of the retirement of democratic senator herb cole. it is courtesy of wmvs tv in milwaukee. you can see it at 9:00 p.m. eastern on c-span and you can listen on c-span radio. leading up to the debate, we will reappear today is nebraska senate debate between bob perry and deb risch -- fischer.
is not a great story for the administration to tell and still some traction for the challenger governor romney to talk about about. >> national journal had an interesting article out called defying grat ifvity. the poll numbers for the president are certainly not particularly consistent with the kind of statistics that tony just accurately described. so in a way we put a lot more emphasis on these numbers and month to month results that the president will somehow doing better than that. and i think a lot has to do with momentum. so as long as he's posting a positive number on jobs that's at least north the of 100, whic last month wasn't -- >> i talked about that earlier. he gets a pass on what he inherited and what he didn't. are you playing paul ryan with have not -- because i hope it's not going to be in a high altitude -- i don't know whether vice president biden is also affected fwhi thin air, but hopefully you've got it at a sea level place. apparently tony, romney was training in the mountains around boulder and he had all his blood cells -- >> one of the funniest things i ever saw. >> t
enough. let's go to the tough question for governor romney. you supported the vietnam war. you were a protester, a student at stanford, for the war. i never heard of such a person. you were out there with placards yelling, we have to go to vietnam. we sent 2 million young men to war in vietnam. if it was worth their lives, why wasn't it worth yours or even your time? >> well, i think the premise of your question is unfair. >> well, a lot of people want the unfair question asked and answered. >> it wasn't worth my -- >> do you believe it's pacifist to not fight yourself -- >> well, there are a whole lot of reasons and decisions that were made during the time, during that war, that my family and i talked about, that i had my concerns about. but that is not what this election is about. this election is not relitigating the past of why i did or didn't go. >> the reason it's relevant, that you're going to be sending more men and women to get killed in some cases or take serious life-long wounds, and at the same time, when you had supported a war, another time you were for a war, you made
governor romney had the better night last night. what do you expect to happen to the polls coming out of this? >> i could see romney getting a 2, 2 1/2, 3-point swing toward him. there was one pull-out this afternoon after the debate that had a two-point swing. since obama was up by four or five, which will bring us back to two or three points. that is where gravity is in this election, is about a two and a half point win for president obama. that's what bush got in 2004. so many analogies between this election and that one eight years ago. we'll see. i think this will not win the election for romney by itself, but it puts him in a position where he could set himself up for a win. if he had lost that debate, then you would really need a hail mary, i think. >> nate, thanks for coming by. the book is fantastic, and best of luck with it. enough with the numbers and poling. the split screen was worth a thousand words last night. we decode the body language straight ahead. [ male announcer ] how do you measure happiness? by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how about...by the bowlf
choice for president that we have faced at least in my memory. now that governor mitt romney has made it official and he has picked paul ryan, they are both decent man. i do not need your boos. i need your help. i want to be straight with the. [applause] i have a bad reputation of being straight and telling you what i think. sometimes all of what i think. all kidding aside, in taking paul ryan, what gov. romney did is he has given clear definition to all of those vague assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of the things paul ryan is talking about, but never in any detail. by laying out why he was picking paul ryan, he picked paul ryan because paul bryant represents the ideological -- the center of the republican party. host: the vice president yesterday. the question is, arthur party is still relevant? when the walker has this-- wendy walker has this -- from the campaign trail in new hampshire, congressman paul ryan campaigning in the southern part of the state. >> this is a high-stakes election. if we have four more years like the last four
government romney said -- governor romney said about the 47%. my opponent does not seem to be care -- to care much about them either. he voted five times to ship our jobs overseas. nine times to continue its attack subsidies. he voted twice to and medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies. that is not providing a safety net. that is creating a problem for the people in the state of nevada. they need to know who is fighting for them and who is fighting for the big guys. whenever my opponent says, he talks a good game rather than spending with middle income people from nevada who lost their jobs through the -- through no fault of the rhone, he has been taking care of business at home. you want to create jobs? invest in nevada's fledging energy companies. he voted against investing in nevada's companies that will create good paying jobs right here in nevada. >> thank you. >> she has so many talking points. she has not helped the middle class. nobody has done more to hurt the middle class than my opponent. every time they come for a handout, she bell's them out. she bailed on eve
, with that first in. >> we don't have any details on what the challenger is going to do. governor romney said he'll create 12 million jobs and the president has laid out a vision, put a marker in the ground and does have a track record to run on if you look at what he's been able to do in four years in moving us from the worst economy, almost a depression to where we are now in a recovery moving in the right direction. the devil will be in the details and the governor just can't sit there and say i'll create 12 million new jobs, trust me. >> terry, do you come out with the details during a debate like this around the table? i've been told repeatedly you don't do it until you win, frankly. >> well these debates are not great places to come out with a detailed plan, the amount of time each candidate has to address the issue also be limited. clearly both candidates will press, both guy also press the other one on some of the details in an advantaged way. i heard the debate earlier about the details and governor romney's plans. he also has laid out a vision for the direction he wants to take the cou
's being created and i think governor romney's going to do a very good job of one of growth, of one of allowing the states to be more engaged in policies. >> reporter: so, of course, he thinks romney is going to do good tonight. is he partisan, no doubt about that. we'll see how it plays out. >> david, i understand that you're still going to talk to kyle bass in a few minutes. what is top of questions in your mind? >> kyle is a big macro thinker. he also runs a hedge fund that makes stock picks like everybody else. we're also going to talk about, first off, the growing debt world we're going to talk about that and might talk about stock runs in about ten minutes from now. >> all right. thank you very much, david faber. >> "the wall street journal" that bald men have an advantage. the study finds that men with shaved heads, like these guys, are perceived to be more dominant, taller, stronger, and in some cases greater leadership. >> but they have natural baldness. there's a difference. >> compared to men that have long or thinning hair. that brings us to this morning's "squawk on the
would focus on mitt romney because this really is it for mitt. i would go right at the central concern. i would say i would ask, governor, bain capital, which you helped to run, had many successes but it also had many failures. the bering company, the typewriter company, name a list of them. have you ever met, have you ever talked to, do you note names of or anything about the lives of any of the people from those plants that closed as a result of the investments of bain cap signal give me a name, give me a story. >> probably knows the ones the obama campaign ads have mentioned, right? >> probably knows those but those aren't the ones he wants to mention. >> probably doesn't want to bring them up. >> no, probably no. >> no amazing the degree which bain has been a problem for romney. figure this is coming up one way or another, if not from lehrer, certainly obama. i will take my turn, howard, curious what you make of this i would like to hear, i think maybe the most challenging that jim lehrer can ask mitt romney tonight is a simple one. gore nor, tell us one specific policy area where
